It doesnt really matter what you believe Kristy. Who is the they you are speaking of. We know this much. Courtney life was cut short and she is gone and never coming back. He is in the hospital recovering from a self-inflicted gunshot. I am not a rocket scientist but I think we can pretty much surmise that he is a murderer. Those facts cannot be negated.

they the media. it does not show the whole story. nobody knows except the people there and i think that there was more than just Courtney and JJ. He is absolutely NOT capable of committing such a crime. Everyone will see when the whole truth comes out.

The thing thats killing me is when dont know what happen the morning Courtney was killed. None of us was in the room with them so how is ya'll going to judge him. People is only going by what the media is saying.Its always two sides of the story and Courtney is not here to tell her side of her story. I knew Courtney & Javorris the love they had for each was real n deep. They was planning getting married next year.In my heart not saying this because he is my cousin it had to be a third person to this case. Its not adding up something is missing to this case. If ya'll knew Vorris like I do he is a humble, He has be though so much growing up as a child COURTNEY was his life his heart, his backbone. Why would he kill her? And Kristy you can believe whatever u want you know what type of person he is.I understand Courtney life was cut short. She was a very new person. But the thing is, It is about Javorris Because I care what type of life he live, What ground he walk on. Everybody make mistakes,we are not perfect. But everybody will see June 19,2009 when the truth come out. I love you Javorris always cousin. God please give my family strength to make it thought this hard time. Rest N Peace
Courtney You Will Be Missed.

I knew JJ in college. You'd never even know this kid was great at football until you asked someone else about him because the guy is so humble and carries so much personality with him. I never comment on anything without knowing the facts, but people should understand the caliber of person Javorris Jackson is. God gave this kid a second chance at life and you see how thankful and blessed he feels everytime you see him. I did not know him long, but I can honestly say he's one of those rare, special people you seldem in a lifetime.

I feel sorry that Courtney (even tho I did not know her) life was cut short but as stated earlier J.J was not that type of person he was very humble and what was said does not fit his character. I pray that he make it out alright because I really do not know the story and when a friend of mine went 2 c him while he was n the hospital, he said he could not remember anything that happened but I can tell u this, J.J would have neva shot himself....he was shot in Michigan back n the days and he cherished life even more since he made it out alive so I believe there is something missing to the story

You are right... it is looking good... He will stand trial for "Pre-mediated FIRST DEGREE MURDER"... PERHAPS YOU WERE SLEEP AND DID NOT HEAR THE JUDGE MAKE THAT FINAL STATEMENT.
IT IS WHAT HE DESERVES!!!!

Okay Kristy - it all came out in Court - he shot her waited until EMS got there - went down to flag them down and let them know where to go then went back to room to shoot himself because he knew they were there and knew that EMS would be able to save him from a superficial gunshot wound. He is a cold hearted, cold blooded murderer whose only thought was how to take Courtney out and save himself - if he really wanted to die - why didnt he shoot himself in the heart too??

This is really sad... WHAT COURT WERE YOU SITTING IN ... he shot her... called the front desk... saw the firedept and ems show up... waved to them... CHANGED HIS SHIRT... TOOK OFF HIS NICE SHIRT AND PUT ON A PLAIN WHITE T-SHIRT...RAN BACK INTO THE ROOM AND SHOT HIMSELF BECAUSE THE FIREMEN WERE AT THE DOOR AND HE KNEW HE WOULD BE SAVED. NOW THAT IS THE ACT OF A COWARD. HE TOOK THE TIME TO CHANGE HIS SHIRT... LET'S NOT GET IT BLOODY... HE KNEW HE WANTED TO LIVE AND WEAR THAT SHIRT AGAIN... HE ALSO KNEW EXACTLY WHERE TO SHOOT HIMSELF SO HE WOULD NOT DIE. REMEMBER HE'S BEEN SHOT BEFORE SO HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS DOING. THAT'S CALLED A "SUPERFICIAL GUNSHOT WOUND"... HE RECOVERED NICELY BECAUSE HE DID NOT WANT TO DIE SO HE DID NOT SHOOT HIMSELF IN THE HEART LIKE HE SHOT HER...
WHAT IS IT THAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND? THE COURT MADE IT VERY CLEAR... HE IS STILL CHARGED WITH PRE-MEDIATED FIRST DEGREE MURDER. WAKE UP AND LISTEN TO WHAT IS BEING SAID!!!

It is apparent Kristy was in an imaginary courtroom - how could you miss what was said??? Why do you think he was charged with first degree murder? That means it was PRE-MEDITATED!! It means he thought about what he was doing before he did it? It means the Judge heard the evidence and believed he thought about it before he did it!!! It means when he is found guilty he will spend the rest of his miserable life in jail - rotting, deservingly so!!

This is just a sad situation. No one can win from this. So many lives are ruined the Courtney's, Javo and their family and friends. I just want to keep everyone in my prayers because this incident has changed so many lives. I know Javo personally and was very shocked when I heard the news. Courtney's life ended so short and tragic. This incident should make other's realize how precious our time on this earth really is.

The sad party is his friends and family all talk about "how they knew him"... he would never do this to her or himself... even sadder... you really didn't know him... none of you had contact with him to know anything on what was happening...

Well every thing he did will come out in his FIRST DEGREE PREMEDITATED MURDER trial...all those who say he could never do WHAT HE DID will see WHAT A MONSTER HE REALLY WAS!! Nothing you can say will defend his horrible actions - any of them!! I don't want to leak any evidence that has not already been presented in court, but he will surely reap what he has sown.

Since you were there at court, did he confess all this that I'm reading? It just doesn't seem believeable. Unless he's claming insanity. Let me know because I'm lost...

So, what day does the trial start? I would like to hear all of the evidence for myself. This is truly a tragedy. I know both Courtney and J-Vo and I also know that u can't put ANYTHING past ANYONE. Courtney was a very smart, beautiful and reserved woman and their relationship wasn't perfect. You never know what a person may do in the heat of passion. They both loved each other but love can make you do crazy things. It's unfortunate that JVo's life is messed up but it is AWFUL that this earth will no longer be blessed with Courtney's presence...

What day does the trial start for JVo?
